UC-BERKELEY: SHAMED INTO SUPPORTING FREE SPEECH

Am I supposed to feel good about this?  Because I don’t.

Excerpted from William Wan and Susan Svrluga’s article for the Washington Post:

Officials at the University of California at Berkeley on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel a speech by conservative firebrand Ann Coulter.

The university had announced Wednesday that it was canceling Coulter’s appearance following several political protests in Berkeley that turned violent.

But on Thursday, the university said it had found a venue where it could hold the speech on May 2, instead of the original April 27 date. However, a leader of the college Republican group that originally invited Coulter said the university was placing strict conditions on the event, and he said his group intended to reject the new terms.

Before the reversal was announced, Coulter had vowed to go ahead with an appearance anyway.

This is not some epiphany for the powers that be at UC-Berkeley.  It is a case of thembeing shamed into pretending they give a damn about any free speech that conflicts with its hard left four year indoctrination curriculum.

I’ll wait to see what happens…with little expectation that this is the last change there will be before Ms. Coulter speaks.
